 Create your own unique textural mini-weaving, ready to hang on the wall. We will be working on small frames which are easy to warp up. Learn needle weaving, knotting, soumak technique and other textural effects. We will also look at a variety of ways to finish off your weaving.

Suitable for complete beginners and those with some weaving experience. Weaving materials and equipment are provided. Different yarns and materials will be available to experiment with.

Please bring small scissors, an old dining fork, a 30cm ruler and a pencil. Option to bring your own sticks, yarns etc. to include in the weave.

If you wish to continue at home, frame looms may be purchased from the tutor for £22 (optional) and additional yarns will also be available to purchase.

Jackie teaches weaving as an art form, exhibits and undertakes commissions internationally. She has been weaving for over 20 years and teaching for 12 years. www.jackietapestry.com
